A Message From Your Seminar Leader

Dear Colleague:

Do you spend too much of your time dealing with recurring, difficult and disruptive behaviors, and often, with the same students? Society has changed and so have the students we work with in our schools. Today, more than ever, educators face a variety of recurring and disruptive behaviors that take away from valuable teaching time. I would like to invite you to join me for a strategy-packed seminar to learn new ways to stop the repeated difficult behaviors in your classroom.

In this highly practical seminar, you will learn doable, research-based strategies that will help you work smarter with the disruptive and challenging students. The focus will be on the prevention of negative behavior, since this is the key to establishing an effective classroom-management system. Numerous strategies for dealing with consequences and interventions will be shared.

The good news is with the right help, students can learn and change their behavior. This seminar will teach you strategies to inspire students to want to change their behavior. This approach focuses on internal encouragement rather than external rewards and punishment. I will walk you through all of the steps and provide dozens of examples as well as demonstrate sound techniques and activities that can enrich what you are already doing in your classroom. My goal of the day is for you to leave this seminar with new tools, sharpened old tools and fresh perspectives to use in helping difficult students succeed.

This seminar is filled with concrete strategies for classroom teachers, behavior specialists and counselors. It provides detailed and helpful suggestions that support you in anticipating and addressing repeated and often overwhelming behaviors. You will learn realistic, research-based strategies that will make a difference in how you view and respond to students.
